Live Event Season: Hotel rooms, fast food, convenience store snacks and almost 100,000 miles each year of the worst roads possible.
We here at Eastmans’ have some of the best western highway drivers. We have, knock on wood, traveled almost 40,000 miles so far this year and almost two million miles in the past ten years during the winter and have yet to total anything. I hope I didn’t just jinx our season!
Roger and Aaron (Mills) traveled to Sacramento, California on some of the worst roads we have ever seen. They had to chain the trailer and truck up three times to get over Donner Pass between Sacramento and Reno.
I personally returned to the airport in Billings, Montana to find my truck practically snowed in. Billings is where we fly in and out; it is a mere 95-mile drive for us on those roads.
The season so far has been a good one. It is always great to get out and talk with everyone at the shows. I love hearing how your hunting adventures turned out this past fall. I have heard some real crazy stories and had the chance to see and hear some stories and photos of great trophies being taken. Thanks to all of you who have stopped by the booth and renewed, subscribed and/or picked up one of our books or DVDs.
We still have about 15 more stops to attend this season, so I hope to see you at one. Check out our schedule on the Live Events page and maybe we will be coming to an area near you.
Please drive safe!
